When it comes to getting clear and committing to your truth, what do you think is involved? And if you’ve spent your whole life pleasing others and doing what you think they’d want you to do instead of what your truth tells you to do, then how do you change?
According to Varian Brandon, a transformational business and leadership coach and an expert in helping her clients stand boldly in the truth of who they are, you’ve first got to tell yourself the truth.
For Varian, the equation of power is Truth2 + Voice = Power. Truth2 means truth to yourself first, then truth to others. For many of us, we won’t even tell the truth to ourselves, which makes it impossible to tell the truth to others.
In today’s episode, Varian and I unpack this idea of Truth2 and get into how she became committed to truth. Join us as we cover everything from Princess Diana to setting personal boundaries.
